Skin Deep Tattoo Magazine 292

Skin Deep has long been the UKs best selling tattoo magazine - and just because we're having fun for 13 issues a year (that's once every 4 weeks) doesn't mean we're not taking it very seriously indeed. Each issue we publish profiles, interviews and features with the leading tattooists and tattoo artists working in the world today together with exciting new talent. Alongside of this, we focus on the tattoo lifestyle and all it contains, coverage from the international convention scene, art features from those who embrace the tattoo ethic or find inspiration within it, reader profiles, news, reviews, competitions, letters and every issue also comes with a free supplement.

the wolf at your door

editor@skindeep.co.uk@skindeep_uk@mrsionsmithIN A WORLD THAT PRIDES ITSELF ON BEING ‘ALTERNATIVE’, HOW COME A HUGE PERCENTAGE OF THAT WORLD, IS ALL THE SAME?I picked up a book this week called ‘Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now’. Not the snappiest of book titles but good enough to have me standing in the book-store ploughing my way through it. Such a thing is never too far from my thumbs, so I picked it up and in about five hours, read the whole thing without stopping for much.There’s a lot of food for thought in it and you should be scared. You should be concerned about what the platforms get away with behind the curtain that you would never, ever, put up with in real life.Anyway, that’s the bigger picture and…

Visually…

the woman in the woods

Celine PreherI WAS REMINDED OF MY EARLIER THOUGHTS ON TATTOO JOURNALISM, AND HOW FREQUENTLY THE FUN CAN BE SUCKED OUT OF OUR CONSTANTLY-QUESTIONED INDUSTRYWhen you’re a writer submerged in your field of interest, it can be hard to not get bogged down in all the serious stuff. Here in tattoo town, there are always important topics to be discussing and magazines are vital forums in which we can kick off relevant contemporary debate for our industry. But, as well as making time for the significant stuff, we have to do the same for the little moments of good.I’ve just returned from a big family holiday to the island of Bali. It is a truly magical corner of the earth. Whilst the locals see the spirits of the gods in every…

davepaulo_tattooartist@davepaulotattooartistUNTIL A FEW YEARS AGO, I WOULD HAVE SAID THAT TATTOOS WHERE TABOO IN PORTUGALSurrealism is a funny ol’ word. Rather aptly, you might say, it defies definition: most dictionaries and people in the know, such as those fine people at Tate, make a connection with the Parisian movement of the 1920s led by André Breton, but surrealism, as a term, has since come to represent just about anything in life that looks or feels or acts a bit… well… strange. For many, the most important word in there is ‘realism’ with ‘surrealism’ being a twisting of what we consider to be ‘real’ in some way. And if we were to ask, I reckon that’s how a guy like Dave Paulo might see it.David Costa Paulo was born not in…
